It's the same old classic Charles Dickens story with an all star Disney cast. Uncle Scrooge McDuck is appropriately enough Scrooge and is visited by his dead partner and 3 spirits one night to remember the joys of Christmas. Written by

Originally, Alan Young was not considered for the Scrooge role, despite having played it in the album recording. Reportedly, it was because Walt Disney Pictures believe he would not agree to do a voice for animated film. However, when Young learned about the film in production from a friend preparing to audition for the lead, he contacted the film company to request an audition. The resulting audition was successful and Young learned about the studio's reason for not contacting him. In reaction, Young responded, "Hey, I worked in television for five years with a talking horse. At this point in my career, nothing's beneath me." As it happened, Young was praised for the role and continued being the voice actor for Scrooge McDuck in later productions. See more »
The interior of the house changes, such as the location of the dining room table at the end compared to what it was like during the scene when the Ghost of Christmas Present brought Scrooge over. For example, the dining room table is near the front door at the end, but earlier it wasn't. See more »
Spirit, whose lone grave is this?

Why yours, Ebenezer. The richest man in the cemetery!

This short film holds a special place in my heart as I remember watching it every Christmas on ABC. Then my parents bought the movie, and we would play it every year while we were decorating the Christmas tree.
Now, I get to watch it again on the 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse' DVD, and it's as good as ever! The use of classic and obscure Disney characters in this timeless Charles Dickens story is fantastic! Major characters like Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Jiminy Cricket fit in nicely to their roles, as does the rare characters (Scrooge McDuck, Pegleg Pete, The Giant, and the cast of Mr. Toad).
For Disney fans, animation fans, and Christmas fans, this movie is a great addition to your collection. For me this is truly a magnificent Christmas classic, and will be a favorite of mine for years and years to come!
My IMDb Rating: 9/10. My Yahoo! Grade: A (Outstanding)
